Re: 2020 Rd 13 V Panthers: Teams and Previews

In fact, they've had a fantastic year so far looking at their results: Current Ladder Position: 1. Panthers 2. Storm - win 3. Eels - 6 point loss (had them beat until Waqa Blake put on 3 tries in ten mins to sneak a win for the Eels) 4. Roosters - win 5. Raiders - haven't played yet 6. Sharks - win...

Re: Canberra Raiders look to open contract talks with Jordan Rapana

Rapana brings the intangible of a highly competitive attitude. Sometimes it gets away from him and transfers into poor discipline. While that last part can be frustrating for fans the benefits outweigh the negatives. Its far less likely to turn into poor discipline when the team is doing well. As l...

Re: Canberra Raiders centre Curtis Scott denies he is heading to Canterbury Bulldogs

The only difference being Leilua spent his first pre-season after signing for the club getting into the best shape of his career so far and then producing the 2016 Leipana season. So his form followed a newfound dedication off the park and commitment to the club. Scott spent his first pre-season ge...

Re: 2020 Rd 12 V Cowboys: Game Day

I agree GE, and he was lucky it was just a knock on earlier in the game that he made too. He ran out of the Line in no mans land and got lucky as it was almost a try if the Cowboys player caught the ball. As for his antics, it’s not a Raiders thing to do I agree too. I cringed when he did it, very ...

Re: Is a Canberra Raider the most under-rated player of the modern era?

And yet these arguments are complete bollocks. Once you settle on "underrated by who - the media" the obvious answer is Elliot Whitehead.

Like the roosters, I’d be disregarding his Toronto form considering a few things: - He’s an all time great. - He’s a fitness freak - He knows the set up and will be comfortable in his surroundings.

Possibly the best thing for this season about this if and when it happens is the increased durability it gives the team.

CHN seems to play on the left from the highlights package. Does he stay on the left and we move EW or does CHN shift? My view would be not to move EW. Thoughts?
plenty of time on the right. a bit lacking defensively though so hopefully he can improve in our system.

Because I think the cap should be kept consistent across the season and you shouldn’t be able to borrow from yourself across time like that to effectively create an above cap team.
